Re: Which way to go for the big 5-0?

"It looks like all your other ones"
I think your wife and mine have been talking. I hear that a lot.

The Pointer Date is a stunning watch. If I had room for another dress watch, this one would be on the list for sure.

Coronavirus Weekly Check-In Thread - April 5

Happy April everyone, I hope this week’s thread finds everyone reasonably healthy. Few changes for us this week. I’m still working my regular hours, but move into the office for 2 weeks starting tomorrow, knowing that I’ll be returning to a very different landscape in 2 weeks time, as our patient nu...

Re: Coronavirus Weekly Check-In Thread - March 21

Snowstorm, during spring thaw/flood, in the middle of a pandemic..... :shock: Same up here. Lots of snow in the past week, and temperatures below -20C (-4F), when normal should be around +6/42F. We had false spring in February, and now we are in 3rd (or maybe 4th) winter. I really need to see some ...

Re: Unusual Service charge from 3rd party shop

You haven't actually stated how "brand new" or the number of seconds your watch is running fast or slow, just that you want it regulated. If it's way outside the "acceptable" tolerances (+ to - 20 seconds) then it needs to go back to CW. If it's within the acceptable tolerances (+ or - 20 seconds) ...

Coronavirus Weekly Check-In Thread - March 29

Good day forumites, I hope that this weekend finds you all well or on the mend. Lots of changes in the world in the last 7 days. Infections are up around the world. Our friends in the United States are in a fight to contain the monster right now. I think that most of us have increased restrictions o...

Re: Trident Chronograph Quartz

Size looks good to me, but how it feels on the wrist is personal. Thickness is a personal thing, and for me depends on how I plan to wear it. Too thick to slip under a cuff? Maybe. Too thick for jeans and a T-shirt? Maybe not.

I admire a lot of the modern Grand Seiko watches but I do wish they would rediscover lumed hands.
The Grand Seiko Sports Collection watches have lumed hands, with a couple of exceptions. I don't think any of the Elegance or Heritage collection do though.

A little levity (with a serious message), because we all need some lightness during tough times:

Re: #OneGoodThing #coronavirus #covid19

Social media proves that it has real value every time there is a disaster, but I think this is the first time it's had this much impact on a global scale. Facebook and Reddit are both providing a place to get information (although their is a lot of bad information out there unfortunately), as well a...

Re: Coronavirus Weekly Check-In Thread - March 21

I am so happy to see the posts from everyone on this thread. I think it really does show that we are family of sorts. I realized after I posted that I didn’t share my story this week. My wife and I continue to go to work, as we are both work for essential services. Colleen doing water quality testin...

I apparently have enough TP for 6+ months. Not intentionally, but because I happened to pick up a Costco pack about a month before this all kicked off.

Re: Gamages of London

Looks good, and you definitely picked the best colourway. It's too big for me, but I'd wear that in a 40mm three-hander.

Re: Coronavirus

I read this blog post today, and, while it is increasingly difficult right now to separate the wheat from the chaff when reading articles online, I think this one is worth sharing. Perhaps a little bit of insight into the world our own Welshlad is inhabiting right now. The writer is based in Canada,...

Re: Forever watch...

There are some people with great taste on here, since my first two thoughts were the Speedbird (still one of my favourites, even after 7 years) and the Sinn 556 (the watch I would own if I didn't have and love the Speedbird). Another great option would be a pre-owned Seamaster Professional mid-size....

Re: Where have you travelled to today?

Great thread Paul, and I loved the video. Yesterday I took a trip to South Africa to visit Ernie Els. Today started out with a visit to Ethiopia, and as I type this I am having a brief visit to summer with a lovely locally brewed Salted Citrus Pale Ale.
